Track Shoes

Track Shoes

Traction for all Types of Terrain

Komatsu track shoes provide the working platform for the machine. Track shoes penetrate the ground giving the machine traction to move. Proper shoe selection is very important for better machine performance and longer undercarriage life. The narrowest shoe possible that allows adequate floatation should always be selected. A wider shoe is more likely to reduce the life of the undercarriage due to flexing while the machine is riding over rocks and hitting obstacles. Komatsu offers the correct shoe for all underfoot conditions specifically engineered for both dozers and excavators.

Benefits
Provides a stable operating platform and better maneuvering.

 

Double Grouser Shoe

Application
Suitable for both soft and hard ground

Benefits
